the power of portions

Let Your Salesperson Become Your Least Expensive Employee here a very few days during the week that I don’t hear from one of my chef friends that they are in need of a cook. It’s a way of life in a commercial kitchen. Cooks come and cooks go. We are numb to the endless piles of write-ups, no-call no-shows and never ending new hire paperwork. It just happens. This transition is then followed by sometimes weeks of training. I wish I had a back pocket full of available cooks but that’s just not the case. I do have a possible solution that benefits all of us. Why not utilize your food service sales person as if they were one of your employees. The days of looking at Food Cost as the ultimate kitchen metric are in the rear view mirror. Today’s environment requires a closer look at Prime Cost (the combination of Food Cost + Labor Cost). By following your Prime Cost the use of convenience ingredients can be offset by a reduction of labor. Allow your salesperson to introduce you to the vast array of convenience components that can allow you to operate with reduced labor. Your Culinary Team Member is available to you to help demonstrate individual products and ingredients. The best part is that your salesperson won’t affect your payroll. Allow them to become your least expensive employee.

PPF# 16440 Pumpkin Cranberry Bash Pie

Stack PPF# 103275 Pumpkin Cranberry

PPF# 105906 Pumpkin Spice Bundt

Autumn is gorgeous. As you can plainly see. PUMPKIN CRANBERRY BASH, PUMPKIN CRANBERRY STACK, PUMPKIN SPICE BUNDT

All the comforting, spicy flavors favored in autumn. Harvest goes uptown.


In Season: Maple Maple is poised to take over as this fall’s most popular flavor, according to Market Watch. The seasonal favorite flavor pumpkin spice may be leveling out — new items with the flavor are flooding the market, but sales aren’t keeping up. Maple has seen tremendous growth in both food and beverages. Maple water — sourced from the sap of maple trees— is having a moment, and has the potential to triple its market share by 2020. In the hard drink category, there is now maple vodka produced by Vermont Spirits. This is in addition to the plethora of maple whiskeys, produced by big brands such as Crown Royal, Jim Beam and Knob Creek. Foods that are branching out into maple would be smart to tout its overall nutritional value, with 40 antioxidants and low calorie level for a sweetener. In addition, making a limited-time seasonal item would add to its allure. One of the reasons Pumpkin Spice Lattes have such a following is because there are precious few months when they can be ordered. If marketed wisely, maple could also help pumpkin spice stay relevant. As a rising tide lifts all boats, a new interest in maple could sustain the popularity of other fall flavors. Seasonality plays a huge part in menu development because people want change and excitement, especially when only available for a limited time. Restaurants want something that can differentiate its menu from the plethora of pumpkin spice products popping up everywhere. Maple could be the thing!

Social Skills

Top 10 Best Practices for Restaurants on Facebook veryone has to eat, and 700 million of those people are also on Facebook. When 88% of people are influenced by reviews and online comments, having an intentional digital strategy is important to your restaurant or bar. Here’s what you can do to make the most of it. 1. RESPOND You want to engage your fans on your Facebook Page, but you also want them to know that you are engaged, too. Be sure to answer questions, address concerns, and acknowledge when people take the time to post on your Page. Even if it's just a thank you for a nice remark, be sure to respond to your fans. 2. EDUCATE YOUR FANS Restaurants have a unique opportunity — they can showcase the food, provide recipes, explain the origin of a dish and shoot videos of the chefs in action. That kind of content never gets old, and it doesn't even have to be original — there's so much stuff on YouTube, and all you need to do is unearth it. People want to know they’re eating the freshest, most flavorful and healthful products as possible so tell them about it. 3. SHOW OFF YOUR GOODS Food not only tastes and smells delicious — it looks beautiful, too. Post pictures of your dishes. Just make sure the photos make the food more appetizing. 4. ADD YOUR MENU TO YOUR FAN PAGE Your fans are hungry. Make it easy for them to find your menu by putting it right on your Facebook page! You can even link it directly to your website. Use the free Woobox app or contact me if you need help 5. DON'T JUST SELL — BE INTERESTING Yes, your restaurant is a business, and your goal is to make profit. But you don't have to do the hard sell on Facebook — oftentimes restaurants are overly promotional. While customers love to hear about new menu items and special offers, they don’t only want to interact with someone who is pushy. And remember to let others promote your brand as well. After all, good word of mouth marketing is the most effective (and authentic). You can motivate your customers to become ambassadors by treating them well, listening to them, talking to them, informing them and being interesting and engaging. Once you do that, your loyal fans will spread the word for you (for free!) online and in real life. 6. SHARE YOUR PRESS You've worked hard to get good reviews and spur people to write blog posts about your food. Go ahead and share it with the world. This goes in hand in hand with avoiding the hard sell — by being awesome, you'll motivate people to spread the word. More publicity means more customers, and it will gain steam as long as your product is delicious and your customer service remains excellent. 7. BE CONSISTENT ONLINE AND OFFLINE Be sure that your employees are well trained on food, service and other intangibles. And certainly make sure your social media manager has the right answers. You don't want people to get answers on Facebook and hear a different story when they show up for dinner. It can be hard to maintain seamless communication but it's important to stay in the loop and make sure that the information put out by your restaurant is accurate and consistent across all platforms, whether they be social platforms or in-person. Being inconsistent will lead to confusion and frustration for your customers, who may feel like they were promised one thing, only to be told something else upon arrival.

8. DON'T GIVE AWAY TOO MUCH Whereas a bike store or car dealership are typically single-purchase businesses, restaurants are in a unique position in that someone could be a customer every single day. And while group deals and offering discounts might be good for a one-time promotion to increase Likes, you don’t want to give too much away. A promotion for a buy one, get one free burrito can get a lot of people buzzing and in the place, but the business doesn’t have to lose too much money on it, because for every free burrito, there is a paid burrito. Just giving away product or offering steep discounts a la Groupon can have detrimental effect on the perceived value of your product, thereby making customers less likely to want to pay full price once the deal is over. A once-in-a-while promotion that isn’t too generous keeps people coming back week after week without giving too much away. Plus, you’ll get a sense of your social media influence if you offer a code or buzzword on Facebook for in-store redemption. Experiment with different times and codes to discover when people are more inclined to be driven to your store by social media. You want to use Facebook to enhance traffic and sales, but to do so most effectively, you have to know when people are paying the most attention to you. If you’re looking to build loyalty and Likes and keep people coming back, don’t just give away product. The best thing to do is respond to people, talk to them like they’re your friends and show your appreciation for them. To customers, that’s worth more than a free sandwich. 9. RESPECT AND APPRECIATE YOUR TEAM A restaurant is nothing without the people who comprise it. It’s a group effort. When a customer posts about a positive experience on Facebook, be sure to pass it on to the team and also thank the customer and tell him you're doing so — both parties will feel special and appreciated. However, sometimes people write about not-so-positive experiences, and that can be a trickier situation to manage. Be sure you resolve any issues, apologize for the perceived wrongdoing and let the customer know what steps have been taken to remedy the situation — followthrough is key if you're trying to get that customer back in the door. Also realize that your staff is on social media sites and are essentially ambassadors for your store. Show some appreciation, and they'll appreciate their job even more. 10. FACEBOOK IS NOT TWITTER Sure, it's easy to automatically syndicate your Twitter posts to Facebook and vice versa, but is it a good idea? No. Just consider the 140-character limit on Twitter. That means Twitter-to-Facebook posts will be extremely short (and photos and links won't show up like they do when you post directly to Facebook), and Facebook-to-Twitter posts will likely get cut off and people may be annoyed that they have to go to Facebook. Also it gets rid of any incentive for someone to follow you on both platforms if everything you're doing on them is the same. Variety is the spice of life, and food establishments should know that.

Commodity Corner Pork Belly and Bacon Market Weakening Total Pork Production is up 5.5% over 2017 year to date. This strong production continues to keep pressure on the market and is helping to keep asking prices well below expectations. The total pork cutout asking price is down more than 25% compared to same time last year. Leading that loss are bellies which coming into this week were down more than half the price they were this time last summer. Overall domestic demand remains fairly light and the ongoing trade issues are keeping the market unsettled. Bacon Processers have worked really hard to use up all of their more expensive bellies that were in cold storage as the current fresh market is down considerably. That being said, we are seeing the bacon market dropping weekly by nickels and dimes instead of pennies and expect that to continue through September and possibly beyond. Check with your Pocono Sales Representative for further updates.

Where has all of the Select Graded Beef Gone? Basically, consumer and overall market demand for higher quality beef has increased over time, both domestically and in the export market. The beef industry has reacted to this and is producing more beef that grades Choice and Prime versus Select. There has also been huge growth in branded beef programs like IBP’s Chairman’s Reserve and Star Ranch Angus that typically source from the higher grades. Over the last 10 years, you can see percentages of Choice and Prime have gone up and Select has gone down. So demand for higher grading beef exists, and the industry responds by increasing the supply of higher grading beef.
